In a small group, the very friendly guide Andre led us through the red light district. We have learned a lot about the red light environment and the background. The new and the old red light district were on our tour. We saw a lot and are happy to have booked the tour. Bring Amsterdam a bit closer to a tourist. A very interesting tour, highly recommended !!
